I finally have an idea! It’s about two zombies who are trying to celebrate Valentine’s Day and I’m going to call “Til Death Us Do Not Part”.  I just hope no one else has a similar idea yet!

Well, you sir (Mark), have yet to acheive the gold standard of OWC greatness: A positive review from Jeff. Over my illustrious four years as a screenwriter I have received three positive reviews from Jeff. Although he was probably schlammied on Jagermeister while sitting in his hot tub dreaming of all these voluptuous honies he’s always talking about, but in reality was sniffing a pair of Stevie’s Daisy Dukes.

Quoted from eldave1


Libby!

No - I was not abducted :

We've been moving my wife's Dad to live with us. He's wheelchair bound so we've been having to do a lot of accommodations (bathrooms, door widening and the like) so my time has been consumed.

I have not typed a single sentence yet but am going to try to find time.

In terms of this:



First, comedy is subjective. For me the measure is going to be was there a genuine attempt to make me laugh or smile regardless of whether I personally do either.

Second, did the writer at least attempt to meet the spirit of the genre? e.g., If 4 pages out of the 5 focus on the horror of Zombies killing people and Valentine's day - nope. But if the story is about a couple of Zombie's celebrating Valentine's day - yep (kind of funny on it's face). I think it cold be titled "Death Will Not Do Us Part"

Dramatic elements could simply abound as well as most Romantic Comedies are full of them. In As Good as it Gets - Simon is nearly beaten to death and in another scene is horribly rejected by his parents.

The real challenge here is it being a Short. Hard to include multiple story phases in such few pages. So for me:

- Make sure you have the three elements in your story.
- Incorporate a Romantic theme
- Keep the script between five and ten pages
- Make an earnest attempt to make someone smile or laugh


Hey, hey, hey!
He's alive.

Hope your dad-in-law is settling in.

Goodo, on the other front. Looking forward to reading your entry which I already know will be a class act.

No pressure whatsoever.

P.S.  Dave/Gary, 'Zombies In Love' was mine!

  HaHa!!!

I wonder if Stevie still has those short jean shorts he's so famous for?  I hope they're long retired, but knowing Stevie, I bet he still brings them out and parades around the house, thinking back to when he was "young".

My thoughts exactly, or Paul. I imagine both will be hard to best.

Aw, nuts. I overshot the mark. I was aiming for 12 pages for some reason...

Now I need to cut something.
